Affordable Living Options

Our affordable apartment program offers quality apartment homes for reasonable monthly rents. Monthly rents are based on family size and maximum income limitations set by the Department of Housing and Urban Development for each metropolitan statistical area. These apartments are set aside for households earning no more than fifty percent of the median income. You will be asked, and are required, to complete forms that request your income level, family size, student status, and financial assets.

These factors determine your eligibility. Each year, you must recertify your income and family size before being offered any extension or renewal of your lease. Our management teams will be more than happy to help you by providing the necessary forms and assisting you with the application process.

To qualify, your total combined income must be less than that in the Published Incomes chart here.

Gross income includes all forms of income prior to any deductions (employment, disability, Social Service assistance, unemployment, pension, annuity distribution, cash contribution from outside source, etc.)

all income earned from assets is also included in the gross income calculation:

Market Value Minus the Cost
Each asset is assigned a “cash value”, which is the market value of the asset minus the cost to convert to cash. In the case of a real estate asset, any mortgage balance would also be subtracted.
Less Than $5,000

If a household´s total “cash value” for all assets is less than $5,000 the actual annual income from those assets is added to the household´s gross income.

Greater Than $5,000

If a household´s total “cash value” for all assets is greater than $5,000 the amount added to the household´s gross income from those assets OR the “cash value” multiplied by .06.
